Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey already has a legal problem on his hands involving a possible domestic abuse situation with his ex-girlfriend for which Carey was charged with disorderly conduct and assault (he has pleaded not guilty).
Now, the All-American is in the news again for something less serious, but nevertheless adding to an increasingly poor off-the-field perception.
The Daily Wildcat reports that Carey was removed from last Thursday’s Arizona basketball game against UCLA after a “verbal confrontation” with both event staff and police. According to a police report on the incident, Carey and his cousin, Hakeem Adams-Johnson, were asked to move from their seats multiple times because they didn’t have tickets.
That’s when Carey allegedly pulled the “Do you know who I am?” card.
When the officer asked both of them for their tickets, Carey responded, “Get the f— out of my face.” He then asked, ‘Do you know who I am? I’m an All-American.”
Carey was referred to the Dean of Students Office for a code of conduct violation for the incident. Don’t expect anything to come of this in terms of a suspension, but it’s certainly not a flattering look for Carey.
